Stainton increasingly looks north for answers in recruitment

It is hard to sugarcoat an 0-12-5 season, but Seton Hall women’s soccer’s Rick Stainton is doing his best to find positives. The soon to be fifth-year head coach knows his team has the talent and capability to win, despite the fact that results were not flattering in the fall of 2017. The transition to the 2018 season has been underway for some time now, from ceremonial announcements of new captains: Taylor Cutcliff, Eva Gonzalez and...

Caine, Houston, Morris, Nagle and Sheppard inducted into Hall of Fame

Keisha Caine was trudging through a rough week when she got a phone call, from an extension she recognized. When the former track and field standout at Seton Hall, from 1991-95, realized the number was that of her alma mater, she anticipated a request for a donation, and quickly prepared herself for what she thought was an opportunity to give back. In a matter of moments, however, Caine was awestruck, as the nine-time All-American and...

Two runs, three hours apart, put the Pirates on the brink of elimination

For the fourth straight season, the Seton Hall baseball team will face elimination in the second game of the Big East Tournament, following a 13-inning, 2-1 defeat to Butler, on Thursday night in Mason, Ohio. The fans in attendance at Prasco Park had free baseball from the start, as the tournament host venue was not charging fees for admission. However, the two teams still managed to give spectators more than was originally promised,...

One last test to ace for Seton Hall baseball

The Seton Hall baseball team will head to Prasco Park on Thursday, to compete in its first game of the 2018 Big East Tournament in Mason, Ohio. The Pirates enter the double-elimination playoff as the second seed in a field of four, with a 13-4 record in-conference that surpassed any mark the team had managed in the four seasons following Big East reconfiguration in 2013. Grounded by mature veterans throughout the lineup and rooted by...

Jaquan Jackson signs deal to continue basketball dream

Over the last two years, no two words have reverberated around Walsh Gymnasium more than “JaQuan Jackson.” The words became calling cards for a momentum-shifting three-pointer, or better, a dagger that secured a win for Tony Bozzella’s team. On May 7, still two weeks away from receiving her Bachelor in Social and Behavioral Sciences, Jackson had officially risen from Pirate to Royal, signing with storied German club Saarlouis Royals...

Florida State transfer Ike Obiagu commits to Seton Hall

DeVoti, trailblazer in radio, ready to broadcast word of God

Growing up in Montclair, N.J., Matt DeVoti dreamed of doing three things as a child: playing for the New York Yankees, broadcasting on the radio and being deeply involved in the Catholic Church. The first of those aspirations proved to be unattainable, but DeVoti spent 38 years from his beginning at WSOU living out the second. After a lifetime of faith, DeVoti is on his way to truly actualizing the third. DeVoti has been studying in...

Softball’s seniors near end, but impact will be a constant

Like the exit velocity on an Alexis Walkden home run or Allie Prukop line drive, the speed of an Alannah Basile fastball or the quickness of Sara Foster defensively in the infield, four years flew by for the Seton Hall softball class of 2018. As freshmen in the fall of 2014, the four Pirate newcomers came to South Orange with their families – Walkden from Cibolo, Texas, Basile from Levittown, N.Y., Foster from Long Beach, Calif., and...

Walkden leaves behind legendary legacy at Seton Hall

Sun soaked the 300-plus fans that lined the bleachers and leftfield fence at Mike Sheppard Sr. Field on April 22. Blue and white balloons hung from bleacher corners, posters hung from fences and a mural of the four softball seniors: Alannah Basile, Sara Foster, Alyssa Prukop and Alexis Walkden, rested behind home plate. Perhaps revitalized by the scene, Seton Hall did not come out like a team that had just dropped both ends of a...

Million dollar smiles: Men’s soccer captain connects with the homeless in South Orange

Day has turned to night and Pedro Neto is making his way to the South Orange train station. It is a trip he often makes, but rarely ever to actually step foot on the train platform. His purpose for being there is far greater. He rounds Cottage Street and makes the turn onto South Orange Avenue. His schedule is overflowing with commitments from being a key member of the men’s soccer team to his demands with classes, but Neto finds time...

FIFA, for once, take ethical stand to stop another anti-LGBT World Cup

International soccer has too often been marred with scandal, ranging from bribery to match-fixing to prejudice. The latter of those three is particularly ridiculous, considering that soccer is a game played by everyone. It is the beautiful game primarily for the wheel of color, variety of religions and different sexual orientations that all share a common-ground with a love of the sport. That beauty is threatened by one of only two...
